Schnuck Markets Inc. will soon begin construction for a $100 million distribution center at NorthPark in Kinloch in north St. Louis County. The new facility, which is expected to be complete in the summer of 2016, is nearly double the size of the regional retailer's current distribution center in Bridgeton, Mo.
“As we continue to grow, our goal is to offer customers an even larger selection and variety of quality foods, and the new NorthPark facility allows us to do just that," said Todd Schnuck, chairman and CEO. "Not only is this project a big investment in the north St. Louis County community, it’s a major investment in the future of our company and demonstrates our commitment to our customers and to the St. Louis area.”
The 915,000-square-foot distribution center will be one of St. Louis County’s largest commercial developments in recent years.
County leaders praised Schnucks Markets for making the investment with a state-of-the-art facility that will help revitalize the community.
Schnucks’ NorthPark facility joins the company’s current 570,000-square-foot grocery warehouse in Bridgeton, which was built in 1971 and has undergone several expansions to accommodate the company’s growth.
Schnuck Markets Inc. operates 98 stores and 93 in-store pharmacies in Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin and Iowa.
